1 Background Vocabulary Excel Project Creating a Stock Portfolio Simulation 1. What is a stock? A stock is a share in the ownership of a corporation, a large business organization. A stock, also, represents a claim on the business s profits. Stock is sold as shares in a business. 2. What is a shareholder? One who owns shares of stock in a corporation or mutual fund. For corporations, along with the ownership comes a right to declared dividends and the right to vote on certain company matters, including the board of directors. 3. What is a stock market? A stock market is a general term for the organized trading of stocks. Stocks are sold through exchanges. The most famous exchange is the New York Stock Exchange. 4. What is a stockbroker? A stockbroker is a person who sells or buys shares of stock for investors. 5. What is a stock certificate? A document reflecting legal ownership of a specific number of stock shares in a corporation. 6. What is a stock dividend? A share of the profits of a company paid as additional shares of stock rather than as cash. 7. What is a cash dividend? A share of the profits paid in the form of cash, usually by check. Dividends are usually paid out four times a year. 8. What is a mutual fund? A mutual fund is a collection of stocks picked by stock managers. The mutual fund can be stocks of one type (like technology) or a blend of different types of companies. 9. What is a stock split? When a stock price is too high, a company may declare a split in the stock. The shareholder receives more stock and the price of the stock is reduced by a certain ratio (2:1 or 4:1). The Simulation In this project, you and your partner will have an imaginary $20,000 to invest. Together, you will invest $20,000 by buying shares in 10 companies or mutual funds of your choice. In order to know about how the stocks are performing, you will create an easy to read spreadsheet and graph that summarizes the investments. For each stock, the spreadsheet is to include the name, symbol, date acquired, number of shares, initial price, initial cost, current price, current value, and gain/loss. Your spreadsheet will also include the total percentage gain/loss. The pie graph will show the percentage each stock or mutual fund contributes to the Stock Portfolio Simulation 2002 Lawrence S. Rubin Page 1

2 total value of the portfolio. The brokers who produce the largest percentage growth will win the simulation. Your Calculations You will be using Excel to perform the following calculations for each of the stocks or mutual funds. Initial Cost = Shares * Initial Price Current Value = Shares * Current Price Gain/Loss = Current Value - Initial Cost Totals for initial cost, current value, gain/loss AVERAGE, MAX, and MIN functions to determine the average, highest, and lowest values for the number of shares, initial price per share, initial stock cost, current stock price, current stock value, and gain/loss for each stock. Percentage Gain/Loss = Total Gain/Loss Total Initial Cost Your Graph Requirements Create a 3-D Pie chart that shows the contribution of each of the stocks and mutual funds to the total current value of the portfolio. Highlight the stock that makes the greatest contribution by exploding the slice and formatting the slice with a picture. Your Web Requirements Use Yahoo to get initial stock or mutual fund data. Use the Web Query feature of Excel to get real-time stock quotes for the stocks owned by your client and to update your spreadsheet and pie chart automatically. Your PowerPoint Requirements You and your partner will create and present two PowerPoint slideshow to the class that will summarize your investments and your portfolio. Grading Rubric (100 possible points) Your grade is based on the completion, correctness, and appearance of each of seven phases of the project. Check off each phase as you finish it.

Adding a 3-D Pie Chart to the Workbook The next step in the project is to draw the 3-D Pie chart on a separate sheet. The 3D Pie chart in Figure 3 shows the contribution of each stock to the total value of the stock portfolio. This project also calls for emphasizing the stock with the greatest contribution to the total value by offsetting its slice from the main portion. A pie chart with one or more slices offset is called an exploded pie chart. As shown in Figure 3, the default 3-D Pie chart also has been enhanced by rotating and tilting the pie forward, changing the colors of the slices, and modifying the chart title and labels that identify the slices.
